Divine Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream

Rating: 4.5 stars 19
Deliciously creamy homemade ice cream is combined with chocolate chunks and maraschino cherries. Though not an exact replica of an ice cream flavor that you may have seen in the store, this frozen dessert is sinfully rich!

Nuclear Chocolate Ice Cream

Rating: 5 stars 1
This is the most chocolate, most rich, densest, custard-style ice cream ever devised. It's spiked with coffee flavor and with such a powerful taste, it earns the name Nuclear.

This is a super-chocolaty Italian-style ice cream - gelato; use the best ingredients possible, because it really makes a difference. I use 70% chocolate for it.
